On the hardware tab, select device manager. Select sound and see what type of card you have. You can then go to that providers site and download the correct driver.
Another possibility is that your speakers have become disconnected. Check to make sure that the wire is connected.
A letter from Altec:
E-mail from Altec Lansing explaining how to use the ACS 495 speakers with Windows XP and Vista:
"These speakers require no special drivers or software to work properly.
At the current time we do not have AMS software or an USB audiodevice driver compatible with Windows XP or Vista. There are no plans at this time to develop this software.
Your speakers will work with Windows XP & Vista. Just make sure you use the audio cable from the back of the subwoofer to the audio or sound out port of your sound card. Do not use the USB cable.
Sound does not come through the USB port The USB cable just allows you to use the AMS software. This software gives you some control over some of the sound features. The same functionality of the AMS software can be gotten by using the buttons on the speakers and the volume control software that comes with your Windows system. If you double click the speaker icon from the system tray, that will open this software up.
With the USB connector removed or the computer turned off, STEREO or PRO LOGIC modes can be selected by depressing and holding the center control down for approximately three seconds. The mode selected will be indicated by the color of the LED on the front right speaker. When the light glows yellow it is in the STEREO mode. When the light is green it is in the PRO LOGIC mode."
CHECK IF THE SOUND DRIVER HAS INSTALLED PROPERLY OR THE ONBOARD SOUNDCARD HAS BEEN DETECTED OR NOT.IF NOT DETECTED TRY THIS:
1.INSTALL XP AGAIN.
2.TRY REMOVING ALL SOUND RELATED APPLICATIONS AND RESTART THE MACHINE SEVERAL TIMES.
